Yup, classic stories about that involves heightism. Some people won’t mind if it’s chocolate or vanilla. Some just look out for personality first instead of looks. If you get rejected by women who are taller than you, please know that it’s not YOU. You’re simply not their type, maybe it’s your personality, perhaps it’s your height. As I shared earlier, the taller girl I dated loved my personality. There is a feeling of protection that I get from a taller man, real or imagined. I stopped forcing myself to go out with men because it’s the politically correct thing to do. I had opened myself up to this man that turned out to be perfect even though on the outside, being so short, it didn’t seem like he would have been my type. I could wax on for pages about how wonderful he is to me and how much I enjoy having him in my life.
Somehow seeing them together helped me break through my insecurities of being with a shorter man.
I wanted to know what they think about dating shorter men. Typically I am more attracted to men of significant height, but I have dated two shorter men in the past.
Anyway, I interviewed women who had dated shorter guys.
The term “Heightism“ was made popular by the Second Barnhart Dictionary of New English‘s wide reaching audience in 1971 and now is a household phrase most short men have heard. If a woman is taller than them, they won’t date them. We dated for a couple of months and things simply didn’t work out. How confident am I that you’ll find the women of your dreams? If am man’s initial conversation is about how tall I am, and he’s full of questions about why I wear heels, and he’s seems preoccupied with my height – or his lack thereof – I keep it moving. don’t appreciate you as much, or they just want sex.
Today I thought it would be a fun topic to discuss about women dating short guys. The same applies to women dating short guys as well. Some people love chocolate; some people love vanilla. Since, I have sworn tall guys, anyone over 6’0″ off!! There may be some truth to that, but as a woman who is 5’7″, I want to literally “look up” to a man, and not down or sideways.
Fun fact #1: I once dated a girl who was taller than me. Fun fact #2: I got rejected by girls who were taller than me because they couldn’t accept the fact that I was shorter than her. He and I went out about three times and all the while, I kept thinking ‘I can see over his head. That’s easy when you are not intimate with any of them.
It’s a long story, we dated for a couple of months and things simply didn’t work out. She’s out there, and she will be willing to accept the fact that you’re shorter. But more importantly, if he’s okay with looking up to me and he’s a confident person I have been willing to get to know him better. The reason why I only date short guys is because they are a little more grounded (no pun intended) but I feel like most want to make up for their height in some way so they push themselves work wise and not so much on being a man whore. When I did date a taller guy 6’4″ it just feels like your another girl…
I knew people starred; I couldn’t stand to look at our reflection as we walked into a restaurant.
Previously, I had my picture taken with a dear friend’s mother who is a tiny woman and I look like an absolute Amazon next to her, so I dreaded the idea of ever seen a photograph of this Jockey and I together even though I considered him devastatingly handsome. And because I’m a very strong personality, I didn’t want a man that I could intimidate in any way.
